    ok lets go... somebody asked me to open a new thread for the new year...

    as I said I've a couple of subject in progress...

    Murat as king of Naples

    The combination of the FI10 Murat reference and the FIC12 Colonel Wolff reference makes it possible to create a historically reliable figure.
    The hypothesis is that the tiger leather saddle (painted by Gros in the famous painting below, transformed into a soldier years ago) has also been used on various occasions and in different uniforms.

    This is a plausible hypothesis precisely because it combines historically reliable and consistent elements both in terms of period and geographical region (the Kingdom of Naples).

    The most complex part of the transformation was to remove the old saddle and insert the pins and in the legs of the horse resting on the ground. A saddle of historex tiger has been decomposed and reassembled by closing the stuccoes with milliput terracotta.

    Seems a lot of work Ivo for a figure that is already of high quality.
    I know its nice to have something unique but can the Historex tiger skin better the Pegso casting .

    I already used the Historex tiger skin, is much more adaptable to an assembly like mine

    I spoke about two subjects...

    here the second... is a little bit more difficult to be recognize but is part of the same series of the Quintidi figures

    who is? I leave you the answer. In this project I'm using more traditional material... many metal Modeles parts

    You have a way with horses. The dapple grey is great.
